Hamilton’s open curriculum allows you to choose courses that interest you and fit your individual academic plan, not because you have to fulfill distribution requirements. Advisors help you make responsible, informed decisions.
Learning at Hamilton is active and hands-on, and we expect you to participate. Whether it’s in the classroom or the lab, on the stage or behind the podium, with a club or a sport — students get involved.
Most of our students – typically about two-thirds – participate in Hamilton’s off-campus study programs in France, Spain, China, New York City, Boston, and Washington, D.C., or choose from more than 100 approved programs abroad.
Sure we get our share of snow in the winter (OK, more than our share), but Hamiltonians embrace their surroundings. Our campus is gorgeous, the Village of Clinton is picturesque, and there’s lots to do in our region, from hiking and skiing in the Adirondacks to exploring the great cuisine and cultural offerings in nearby Utica. Chicken riggies anyone?
Hamilton’s faculty will make sure you develop the intellectual skills, our career professionals will help you pursue internships and other career-related experiences, and our alumni will help you build a career network.
